Ishan Kishan to open for Team India against West Indies in the 1st ODI


Rohit Sharma will formally take the responsibility as Team India’s full-time ODI captain during the initial game against the West Indies at Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad on Sunday. India would expect to offer to set things straight in the three-match home series after their whitewash in the 50-over format in South Africa last week.

In the interim, the restricted overs vice captain KL Rahul has been refreshed for the initial game as he will allegedly be going to his sister’s wedding and Mayank Agarwal, as well as Ishan Kishan, have been roped in. Rohit has clarified that his former Mumbai Indians player would be opening the innings close by him as he is the main choice the Men In Blue has.

Despite the fact that Agarwal is the member of the Indian crew, the opener is as yet in isolation. Mayank who had joined the crew on Thursday is under an obligatory three-day quarantine as would be considered normal to end on the match day.

“Ishan Kishan will open the innings with me. He is the only option we are left with. Mayank Agarwal was added to the squad but, he is still in quarantine according to the rules that’ve been set”, stated by Rohit Sharma on the press conference before 1st ODI match.

The wicketkeeper batsman was the second player after Mayank Agarwal to get a crisis call-up to the Indian ODI crew after an unexpected episode of COVID-19 in the camp. Openers Shikhar Dhawan and Ruturaj Gaikwad are set to miss the One Day International series subsequent to being tested positive for Covid.

Indeed, even middle order batsman Shreyas Iyer has been tested positive for the covid-19 infection and Ishan Kishan could evidently get an opportunity to play the whole series in the event that Shreyas can’t recuperate on schedule and with the Indian group not having such a large number of choices in the middle order right now.

Rohit Sharma and Co. would be anticipating put the South Africa catastrophe behind by proving to be the best in the three-match ODI series against the Windies.
